Decoupage and Spray Paint

I didn’t pay much for this old dresser. It was an ugly, old off white colour and the mirror was dangerously unstable. It had a couple of little scrapes on the top, but was otherwise pretty solid.

The mirror came off easily and spray painting it was a cinch! I was already spray painting my little cane table, so I did them both together. Have I mentioned I love spray paint? It’s so easy to use!! It’s much quicker than a brush and the result is much smoother. Plus, there’s less mess to clean up!
I did a few good coats and it was already looking much fresher, but the scrapes on the top were still pretty obvious.
Recently, I’d been going through some of mum and dad’s old stuff in storage and had found some seriously outdated atlases. These were perfect for decoupaging the top of this dresser. So, about a dozen coats of mod podge later and this is the result. I paired the dresser with my grandmother’s old mirror. They look so cute together. Pretty!!!

    • Yes I’m loving the spray paint. I painted the inside of my house a couple of years ago, and it was painful!! Spray paint is much more fun. It’s just a shame I can’t use it inside. ๐Ÿ™‚
